Linking to learning objects or assets within a topic

In an existing topic you can create links to objects or assets in the LOR. Links to learning objects appear as links in the topic, instead of bringing the text into the topic the way creating a Quicklink during the new topic creation process does. Links to learning objects are preserved when you publish topics to an LOR.

Import a learning object or asset in a topic

  1. On the Manage Content page, use the WYSIWYG editor to insert a quicklink when creating or editing a file topic.
  2. From the Category drop-down list select “Learning Object Repository.”
  3. Click Select an Object.
  4. Perform a search to find the learning object you want.
  5. Click the radio button for the learning object you want to retrieve.
  6. Click Next.
  7. Select the way you want to import the learning object: dynamic link or locked link.
  8. Click Insert on the Retrieve Object page.
  9. If you want the link to open in a new window, select the Preview/view the content topic in a new window or tab check box.
  10. Click Insert on the Insert a Quicklink pop-up.
  11. Save the changes to the topic.
